Alex Kurath


Having run a tree contracting company since 1995 servicing both the commercial and residential markets the decision was made to establish a company solely dedicated to consultancy. During this time he noticed a shortfall within the industry for how tree stocks were being managed and wanted to give clients a proactive approach to managing trees on large sites. Our Tree Management Program was developed. In addition he also wanted to provide sound arboricultural services for the commercial markets for development to assist our clients with speedy resolutions and avoiding project delays associated with tree related matters.
